Wool Carders & Carding

Wool Carders are the tool you use to disentangle, clean and amalgamate fibres. Producing a continuous sliver that is suitable for subsequent spinning.

This is achieved by passing the fibres between moving surfaces and teeth, covered with cloth. It breaks up locks and unorganised wads of fibre. Then aligns the individual fibres to be parallel with each other. All in order to prepare the wool fibre for spinning.
You can also start to create blends of different fibres or different colours using a Blending Board.

We stock the entire Ashford range, including the very popular Blending Board:
